Dang-shen, pilosula (Codonopsis pilosula), potted plant, organic
Family: Bellflower (Campanulaceae)
Hardy to Zones 5 to 9
(Dang-shen, Poor Man’s Ginseng) Twining and vining perennial native to China. Traditional usage (TCM): builds chi and tonifies the blood. A soft and pretty climber with bell-shaped blossoms. The roots are crunchy, very sweet, quite delicious. The herb in TCM is the pressed and dried, rolled root that is sugary and chewy. Highly recommended. Plant prefers part shade and something to climb on–preferably another upright plant but lacking that at least a string. It can be grown in the sun when climbing on another plant, because the plant shades it. Space plants 2 feet apart.
